Had MTF vaginoplasty and my clitoris doesn’t look right

Dr. Reed,  Had a vaginoplasty somewhere else and my clitoris doesn’t look right.  Can you do a clitoroplasty?  My urinary stream is seldom going down and is variable at best.  Have to lean forwards to avoid accidents. Almerinda

Dear Almerinda,

We do vaginoplasty revision every month.  A clitoris of course should be sensate and provide orgasm.  Hope yours does.  We can provide a lower setting if need be, and also do a clitoral hood. It is not unusual to have upward urinary stream diversion, when penile skin inversion technique is used for vaginoplasty, because the skin and everything attached to it wants to return from here it came.

In a natal female, the urethral opening is well below the pubic symphysis (midline junction of the 2 pubic bones).  That’s also easy to fix.
